Essential oils plays a HUGE part in our family and daily life. The benefits we have seen are truly remarkable. I want to share some of our favorite ways to use them in our home, parenting and on the yoga mat.
The Start of Essential Oils
When I was pregnant with Eleanor, we lived in Oklahoma and I started to develop minor but annoying skin problems on my hands and stomach. I began boiling water (like my dad) to increase the humidity but also added orange peels in the pot for the lovely scent. My friend asked us why we didn’t begin using essential oils.
My experience with essential oils came from the yoga room, but we did not realize the advantages they held off the mat too. With a growing family and a husband’s career change, I knew working from home was the best option for us to make extra income. My oil journey began with doterra if you have visited in the past and noticed. However, we decided to change our oil journey to Young Living. We purchased the Starter Kit (all of the common oils + diffuser) because I love their Seed to Seal approval.
Ways We Use Essential Oils
Although I am a yoga teacher and pay attention to our health, I still believe in modern medicine. Many of our friends are doctors and nurses and I trust their knowledge and experience always. We are not perfect or completely in all natural household, but oils fit naturally into our modern life with dogs, kids and sweaty yoga mats. Diffusing Lavender in the kids room at night was one of the first game changers. Then using Clary Sage oil late in pregnancy to help stimulate contractions was my next favorite. I love using orange or grapefruit at the end of a morning yoga class. Thieves strengthens our immune system with school and Peppermint
